A fire at a power substation in Moscow was also reported in the morning.

Explosions are regularly heard in Crimea. Russians claim it is the "work of air defense systems" and often close the Crimean Bridge, trying to "camouflage" it. Ukraine has carried out a series of successful special operations on the peninsula since the summer, pushing Russia far back into the Black Sea.

Explosions were heard in Novofedorivka in occupied Crimea on Nov. 23, the "Krymsky Veter" (Crimean Wind) Telegram channel reported. The Saky military airfield is located near the town. The explosions were muffled, suggesting they may have come from underwater.
